TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A 20-year-old man is facing multiple felony charges after being accused of robbing multiple Tallahassee businesses at gunpoint.

On Sept. 10, LCSO deputies responded to an armed robbery at a business in the 3800 block of North Monroe Street where two people, with their faces covered, went into the business and robbed the clerk at gunpoint.

They say one suspect used a chrome, semi-automatic handgun, while the other suspect used a black rifle. During the robbery, the suspects took $6 from the clerk’s register and other items belonging to the clerk and left the scene in a black Acura passenger car.

Later on, LCSO detectives learned 20-year-old Keiron Sarjeant was stopped on Sept. 23 by another agency while driving a black Acura and was subsequently arrested for carrying a concealed firearm found inside that vehicle.

Through further investigation, LCSO determined that the black Acura also had clothing inside it that matched the robbery suspect’s clothing and some of the items stolen from the store clerk during the Sept. 10 robbery.

On Sept. 28, LCSO says Sarjeant was arrested and transported to the Leon County Detention Facility.

Sarjeant, according to LCSO, had already been a possible suspect in an armed robbery on Sept. 18 the Tallahassee Police Department was investigating.

He was suspected of going into a business located in the 1500 block of West Tennessee Street shortly after 8 p.m. and robbing it at gunpoint. Evidence found after his arrest led TPD to file an additional Robbery with a Firearm charge.

The investigation remains active at this time. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Leon County Sheriff’s Office at (850) 606-3300, the Tallahassee Police Department at (850) 891-4200, or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at (850) 574-TIPS.
